In order to see how your taxonomy works against actual data, use the debug features built into the Taxonomy Editor.

Debug against a data stream

If you want to run your taxonomy against a specific data stream to see whether it is returning the documents as expected, use the Run option.

1. On the Home page, click models on the left side navigation and then select Taxonomy.


2. Click the card of the taxonomy that you want to debug, and in the taxonomy editor that appears, click Debug Taxonomy, and select Run.

3. In the Run a Taxonomy Test wizard that appears, click Pick a Stream to select the data stream against which to run the debugger.

4. In the Select a Data Stream dialog that appears, click your data stream, then back in the Run a Taxonomy Test wizard, click Next.

5. On the second page of the wizard, in the Unassigned Fields column to the left, click the plus sign next to your free-form text field and select Text to add it to the Assigned Fields column.

6. A green "Looks good" message appears, and the Submit button is enabled. Click Submit to run the debugger.

7. In the Taxonomy Debugger dialog that appears, you can browse a subset of your data against which the test was run and hover your mouse over any underlined word to see information about the label it matches.

Debug against specific text

If you want to run a specific verbatim and see what taxonomy labels are found, use the Run single tests option.

1. On the Home page, click models on the left side navigation and then select Taxonomy.


2. Click the card of the taxonomy that you want to debug, and in the taxonomy editor that appears, click Debug Taxonomy, and select Run.

3. In the Test Taxonomy_Name dialog that appears, enter text containing a label that you want to test and click Run.

4. Labels found in the text appear underlined in the Matching Result area below.
